I am working on a mini baby album for a baby shower. It's not finished but I managed to get the card done to go with the gift.
 I used three mini cards from the  Baby Cakes Picture My Life kit. There are 120 cards in each kit. 44- 4x6 sized cards,78- 3x4 sized cards, one 12x12 designed cover sheet, 10 12 x 12 memory protectors.
Z1943-$27.50
I also used our Basic Paper fundamentals card stock for the card base. Love the pattern on one side and shiny embossed on the other. I chose the brown strip as I wanted to match the base with the baby cakes and it seemed to go so well. We already know it's a boy so the borrows and yellows seemed to go so well.
 z1939- $21.95- includes 20 -12x12 sized sheets-2 each of 10 designs


 I used  our brand new ShinHan Twin touch markers to colour in the images of this family and kids acrylic set that is one of my favourite but unfortunately retired. The markers are so wonderful to work with as they are alcohol based. I have all 24 and they are a great investment.





 Finally, I used the Cork Circles from the Pathfinding Assortment  to embellish the front of the card.

This is a quick and fun way to use the pIcture my Life cards. I will be using them for more cards in the future !
